Replace the hinge on big joe

The instructions are pretty good.

 

Don't do what I did and cut that zip tie off, thinking it was there for assembly purposes and no longer necessary.

 

It's a long story, but I thought for sure I ruined the hinge and my grill during a base replacement. I recovered from that, but put those zip ties back on!

They're there for a reason and are not meant to be removed!

If you have an older BJ you will also need the new gasket to go with the new hinge. The gap in the rear, with the new hinge, is too large for the old type gasket to seal.

That hinge would not be recommended for a gen 1 BJ. KJ makes a replacement hinge for the gen 1 that is better than the original hinge but not an air hinge like that one. You will need the new gasket for this hinge also.
